Thanks Jeff. Every single person that stayed thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You were right, the cottage has undergone some serious improvements since our last stay and was very comfortable. We have a king here at home and yours was just like being in our own :) we will without a doubt book with you in the future and recommend you to others. Your establishment is a great value and I deeply appreciate and respect that you keep the cost at a reasonable rate. I give it 5 stars!

Beautiful getaway!

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived! The quaint street was like a little hideaway that we didn't know existed. The house is situated right on Little Traverse Bay. Once inside the house we were delighted with a beautiful site of the Bay through a huge picture window! The house was big and very clean. All the bedrooms were big and very comfortable. We enjoyed being so close to everything. Shopping and restaurants galore! I will definitely stay again!

Fabulous Views Great Location

My family and I stayed at 'Stones Throw' for a long weekend that included wedding festivities in Bay Harbor and Charlevoix. This was a perfect location to drive between the different locations! Petoskey has wonderful sidewalks, beaches, and other activities as do the surrounding cities. This house contained all of the necessities, plus some, making packing quite simple. Having laundry on site was very helpful! The size of the house was perfect for a group containing three separate families. The bunk beds were very nice for the younger crowd. The views out the front window are amazing. The owner, Jeff, was very quick to respond and address any questions or concerns. You will enjoy your stay at this location!

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time in this location. Our first time using VacationRentals, and we were very pleased. We had eight people along, and had plenty of room for everyone. The sunsets were beautiful. The kitchen was very well equipped (important because we all enjoy cooking). We biked for miles and miles because we were practically right on the bike path. The ONLY negative that we experienced (and it definitely was a minor consideration) was that the steps to get in the back are higher than a normal step and two of us took a tumble while carrying things into the house.

Overlooking Little Traverse Bay

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at 'Stones Throw'. The home has personality and was ideal for our visit. We were in town for a wedding and the house served our purpose well, as we had quite a few family members and wedding guests in various hotels and another rental house. The view is outstanding and the home is clean and well equipped. I would highly recommend it.
